Our aim is for you to 'Be the best you can be'
Welcome to Hilltop Primary Academy
We are a large and popular school which enjoys an excellent reputation within Medway. The school was officially opened in 1967 and was initially a one form entry school. However, the school has expanded due to popularity over the years and now is a two form entry school with no mixed age classes.
The school benefits from an extremely experienced staff. Our Key Stage 2 results continue to exceed both National and Medway averages which reflect the hard work and commitment of children, parents, governors and of course our staff team.
Key Stage 1 were commended for their ‘rapid’ progress in 2013 and Ofsted recently praised our Foundation Stage provision.
We continue to be committed to the all round development of our children and this is reflected in such activities as our Arethusa Day, our visits to London and local attractions and our Year 6 Residential. We participate in competitive sports with other schools including participating in all of the Mini Youth Games.
In 1974, thanks to the efforts of parents and friends of the school, an indoor heated Swimming pool was opened. In 2007, the school was successful in obtaining a grant from the National Lottery and the swimming pool was refurbished to a very high standard. New changing rooms, toilets and showers were added. The actual pool was tiled and underwater lighting installed. It is now available for private hire by schools and other organisations.
More recent additions to the facilities include our new library relocation and software and Avengers after school club.
The school has benefited greatly from the constant support of a very effective Parent Teacher Association who actively support the running of fund raising events such as the Summer and Christmas Fayre, Quiz Nights, Discos and Race Nights. The money raised has been used in the past to provide a live theatre Pantomime at Christmas, Sports tracksuits for teams taking part in tournaments, wheeled toys for our Reception Children, and computers.
We encourage all parents to join our PTA and welcome your help and support. Please browse our website and contact us if you would like to visit our school.
